OK, so the title is a joke.  As this trip has become more and more epic I’ve been swapping emails and texts with my best friend Dave Kelley from the Natti, and after reporting on today’s amazing adventure Dave just texted, “so, are you having sex with Gabriella Sabatini tonight?”  The trip has been that unbelievable.  Today we second lined with the Uptown Swingers for a couple miles through some unforgiving heat, but with hundreds of amazingly cool folks.  Yesterday at the Backstreet Cultural Museum Steve learned that today’s second line was the last for a couple months, so we planned the day around meeting up with them along the way.  We took a taxi out to the Jazz Daiquiris Lounge where he knew they would stop for a drink.  When we arrived there were only a few folks but it brgan to fill up quickly.  We picked up some cool drinks and waited for the Swingers to arrive.  The crowd could not have been friendlier, which was only partially explained by the flowing of many cool drinks.  Steve knew a couple folks already and made new contacts.  Anyone is allowed to march and it iis a rolling party.  I’ll post some videos later that will give a better picture of the procession.  We marched along tnrough a winding course until they stopped for their next short break at an establishment providing adult beverages (although there folks on bicycles in the midst of the parade that provided the same service).  Utter joy.
